On a Non-Genre Note

Stepping out side of reviews about cities being destroyed by giant wasps and the like, I'd like to make a more serious comment than normally seen on this site. Malcolm Gladwell, acclaimed author of the obvious, has written an article published in The New Yorker, about To Kill A Mockingbird which apparently isn't obvious enough for him to grasp. In it, he takes to task the character of Atticus Finch, who he feels is a racist and a coward. I would like to offer the following rebuttal to Mr. Gladwell: He is an idiot. And he looks funny.
